Hi, you need to edit the textures in the package files. There are some tutorials here:
Tutorials:Skintones and Simmingwiki

I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose free will

Linked in the wiki tutorials I posted is this thread:

Which gives you some tips.
Ren has handpainted these skins, so the highlights and lowlights are added by brush (maybe dodge and burn) in a photoediting program. You'll need to darken or lighten areas individually, according to the effect you want. There's no magic button I can tell you to press.
If you need help using Photoshop then there are plenty of tutorials to be founf on the internet.
